How They are Made

The baskets are hand woven by farming families in small villages in the Atlas mountains of Morocco.  All are ethically sourced. They are made of strips of woven palm leaves from a species of date palm - Phoenix Dactylifera. The strips are then sewn together and the basket built up in "rounds" into the traditional triangle shape. The more rounds the bigger the basket! The handles are of genuine Moroccan leather and firmly fixed to the baskets. 

Caring For Your Market Basket

  • To clean your basket - wash by hand with mild soapy water (do not leave it in water for more than 5 minutes), allow to drain and hang it up to dry
  • Drying in the sun is especially good for the basket
  • The basket is fine to use for wet clothing such as washing or swimming gear. Just be sure to let your basket dry thoroughly after it gets wet to prevent mould. Being made of natural fibre it does not like to remain wet
  • To reshape your basket - wet, reshape and allow to dry thoroughly
  • To clean the leather handles - use a little leather soap, keep in mind that age adds character to your basket
